I’ve found another former slave that I’m interested in researching. Yesterday, I went to the Tennessee State Library & Archives and looked through a book that abstracted wills from Edgecombe County, North Carolina. I am on a hunt to figure out if I can find the slaveowner of my ancestor Rufus Tannahill McNair who was from Edgecombe County. From a quick look through the book, I have some potential leads.
However, I found some information on Milly Dicken that I want to get “out there” so, just as I did for Prosper, I’m on a quest! More to come later….
Update: I started a tree for Milly and her family.
